Mimetic 2013: Odyssey

This piece from Nic Rawling and his Paper Cinema company riffs on the myth of Odysseus's return, after years of war and shipwreck, to his faithful wife and son. It's an apt subject: thanks to tireless craft-work, every Paper Cinema show is an epic, imaginative voyage and a labour of love. But even niftily architectured cardboard palaces, talented instrumentalists and the occasional written signpost can't quite clarify and amplify the story in the way that a sung or spoken narrative might have done. Performed as part of Mimetic 2013 festival.
